Memorial Pool and Health Club

Memorial Pool and Health Club was the first phase of a two-phase project which was associated with the work at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School.  This shared-use facility included a new 25 metre, six lane indoor pool, a health club and community rooms.

 

The project is linked by an indoor 'street' to an existing enclosed arena.  There is a visitors' viewing gallery looking down to the pool off the main entrance. The buff coloured brick building features a curvilinear roof with a semi-opaque clerestory window system.  The interior of the building includes clear coat concrete block, mahogany doors and woodwork, a fir ceiling deck and warm earth tone colours.  

 

The project received an Award of Excellence from the Ontario Association of Architects. It was a joint venture with Diamond Schmitt Architects Inc.
